Had dinner here last week for my 11-year anniversary. The restaurant is small, which is exactly what I like. Chris and Linda took great care of us. Always like a place where the owners are always hands-on. Don't go here if you like the run-of-the-mill food that most places in Portsmouth serve. You won't get it here. The menu is interesting and very delicious. Great food, service and atmosphere.

Relish is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere. The food is always fresh and fabulous. Chris prepares the best duck dishes we have had anywhere. Also try the trout tacos if you are in the mood for something more casual.

A great little find! We went to dinner with another couple to this quaint little place in the owner's home. The place is small and cozy, like sitting on the back porch of our own home. Linda greeted us and attended to our culinary needs.
Chris is a creatively inspired chef as the food prep and presentation was excellent and tasty. The quality was top shelf!
We felt like we were in our own home being served by friends.
We didn't mind the pricing as we are used to higher end food products. This is a great place for a special night out with the one you care about!
We'll be back!

Party of six on a Saturday night. There wasn't a single complaint. Creative appetizers, well prepared entrees, tremendous desserts helped make up this great experience.
The service was top -notch.
Spendy? A little, but worth every cent.

I know the pickings are very slim in rural South Berwick. Relish looks very cute and is very small with only around 5 tables and a few seats at the bar. The menu selection was very limited and the food was just average. We had one appetizer, 4 entrees, 2 cocktails, and 2 non-alcoholic beverages and our bill was still close to $200. For that kind of money we could have had a far better meal somewhere else. Also, we were seated on the front porch (which is really the dining room) and when they turned the stove off, it was freezing cold. I rarely give a negative review, so this is particularly disappointing.
